Al I hear you but it could easily go back to -12 C 850's as well. With a huge transition happening again the models will struggle. And for that the models had mix and rain on some runs 3 days before the blizzard with 850's sitting around 0*C so I am not and we should not look at this 1 week away just look at the pattern set up , there is a storm and that's what counts at this stage.

Al I feel like you need to re-examine what your priorities are going to be moving forward.  An arctic outbreak and a storm set up should not be in the same convo when looking at if temps trend warmer or colder.  From the storm standpoint, all we need is for the upper levels to be cold enough to support frozen, not wet.  This far out looking at temp profiles for the storm is futile.  I know you know that.  However if you want to track the trends of the temps by all means.  And I honestly mean no disrespect in that statement. I personally will not be judging this winter by how cold or warm it is.  I look at snowfall in my back yard, plain and simple.  I could care less if once the system moves through if the temps were forecast to get to -20 at 850mb, but they end up -8 in.  I could care less if the surface Temp anomalies end up -8 or -1 or +2 for the month.  If I end up with 50+" snowfall IMBY like I predicted, then we got our cold shots, and I win plain and simple.  Would I prefer the storm and the sustained cold too.  Hells yeah!!  But with a strong el nino that expectation should not be the focus.  There are other drivers in the equation, if verify like I think, should lead to additional and multiple cold shots and snow storm chances, and prevent the one and done type super nino years.  And yes in betwen the cold shots may get warm, and yes the cold shot that looks like teens or twenties ends up 20's or thirties, again I dont care.  As long as I get snow.

Exactly the past blizzard we just had for me 3 days out was no and rain storm now we know what really happened got crushed. I was 32° for most of that storm. A week away so much can change and will.

NWS yesterday temps will be in the upper 30's SAT-SUN Today saying 45* I'm worried on how cold air gets somewhat established over us Mugs-Sroc I read all your post and they are great I believe the projections looks good but I fear 2 good storms might give us 34* and 2" of rain

scott my priorities? I guess i'm not seeing this winter returns scenario (heck did winter even start yet?) unless we are talking about temps in the mid 30's to low 40's for highs. I do not see the hype for the next 10 days or so (the first seven are way above normal). we have tracked one storm inside of seven days so far (ONE) and we still do not have a storm inside 7 days as I write this. tracking storms is what makes winter fun imo. not how many inches of snow we get. if we get one more 12" snowstorm and end up with 40" for the season is that a good winter? not in my book. esp with the warmth before, in between and after. the pattern was suppose to flip around jan 20th and then winter with a vengeance for the second half. well it flipped sooner and has gone right back to where December was and now we are waiting for some sort of miracle to salvage this winter. I guess it all comes down to perspective. anyway all mets and amateurs are going to end up right about this winter. top 5 warmest and snowier than normal. it's a win/win for all except this winter/snow weenie. all in fun. mother nature always has the last say.

I actually agree with Al to some degree. I loved the Blizzard, but that snow is already gone!! Winter has been way above normal temp. wise and this week looks even more so. I hope Frank is right about winter returning starting Friday, but it really didn't even start yet so it is really a return? Yes we got dumped on so from that perspective it was cool, but 1 storm so far is a BIG disappointment (even though it was a HECS) Hellnino'

Just a difference of perspectives. I personally loved the last 1/2 of last winter. Snow threats every few days and cold for 6 weeks. That's my idea of winter. (or 1996) Hopefully we get a good 5 weeks here starting Friday and then everyone's happy.

Here is a phase 6 for Feb





Phase 4 through 5 comers when the PV is flexing its muscle and the trop forcing is exerting itself so it gets washed out or muted/blocked. Phase 6 in Feb doesn't look bad to me by these maps that another met posted on another board., if we r going just the MJO pulse here.

Syo I wish we could have last winter with 95-96 rolled into one but we don't have that with an uber nino. As my sons Kindergarten teacher woudl say " you get what you get and you don't get upset!" last winter was great and so was the winter before. I can tell you this  IF we get a weak nina for next winter things could be interesting.

I'm not going to complain here I believe its been the last four winters including this one where I have exceded my annual total. Yeah this one hasn't been great by any stretch with a warm November a torch december and a blah January up until Jonas kicked some arse. Lol. I will be happy with one for the history books a record breaking december temp wise and a historic bilizzard . so I will take what I get thank you. Know I'm going to sit back and enjoy the ride something big is coming again.

I hope and trust that somethings coming. I don't think Jersey Shore Frankie would have put out such a positive MoMo if he wasn't confident we looked good going forward. My point is take out Jonas and the days leading up to it ( which was epic by the way) and this winter is the most disappointing and frustrating that I can remember in a long time.

That being said 5 weeks of cold and 3 or 4 plow able storms and I will be over the moon and it sounds like this is possible.

I think your expectations are / were too high for this winter. It's been mentioned numerous times by myself and others we're not going to get a whole lot of cold this winter. It's been expected that snowpack will hardly last a week since temperatures will rebound to above normal thanks to the active sub tropical jet induced by El Nino. Too much Pacific air is flooding the country this season. That said, February will be the coldest month but snow does not always follow cold. You still need things to go right with the pattern besides the cold.

As you can see from the scroll the next storm threat I'm interested in is February 8th-9th. I do not see anything materializing this weekend. For some reason someone at work asked me if there was a blizzard coming this Friday. Hmmm..no. 

Next weeks storm threat highly favors the interior to see a good thump of snow while the coast deals with rain. Obviously this will change over the next few days - including the storm going out to sea all together - but here's why I favor the interior.


A piece of energy over the southeast is going to get captured by this huge trough diving into the central U.S. The ridge over the west coast is very impressive. A truly ++PNA linking with a cut-off ridge in the western Arcric. This is going to displace Arcric air in the North Pole and bring it southward into the CONUS. However, the axis of the trough is over the central U.S. instead of the eastern U.S. Too much upper energy digs on the backside of the trough which allows the Southeast ridge or Atlantic ridge to rise over the east coast. 

This means the storm in the southeast has a good chance of taking a track up the coast instead of off the coast. The only way the coast snow is if the baroclinic zone shifts off the coast. 



Perhaps in future model runs we see less energy digging on the backside which will allow the trough axis to be further east and the baroclinic zone to be off the coast. However, the anomalous ridging in the west may be too much of a good thing and this forces the trough over the Midwest and the southeast ridge to pump along the east coast. 

Since we're dealing with a capture, this has a chance to also meander out to sea. If the trough is slower then the storm will ride the jet steam into the Atlantic. Still lots of time to watch this. A general 6-12 inches could fall from this for those in eastern PA, specifically NEPA, and the HV and maybe even NW NJ. But still lots of time.

Yes whatever happens February 8th-9th there is going to be an arctic blast that follows behind it. Possibly temps in the upper teens or 20s. VERY cold air. Once that cold relaxes, I think that's when we'll get our next significant snowstorm threat. So we're looking at February 14th-18th sometime.

Is it just coincidence that the strongest El Nino ever, also saw the warmest December ever? A December that was 14 degrees above normal and 7 degrees above the second warmest December ever. No month has ever broken an old monthly record by 7 degrees, it's just unheard of.

As a layman who has always associated El Nino with mild and low snowfall Winters this is what I see so far. December record warmth and January 2 degrees above normal, check, with very few snow events basically one so far, check, and sometimes one huge event like 83, check. In my unscientific weather related mind this still looks to me like a winter and especially December that has been dominated by Hell Nino (to steal docstox's term).

Just my thoughts with no science to back it just observation.

On top of strong El Nino there were two other factors working against us in December. 

1. Tropical forcing was over the eastern Nino regions. This promotes a NPAC trough centered over the west coast (-PNA). The west coast was very cold in December and when you have a -PNA coupled with an active STJ that will lead to record warmth for sure. 

2. The QBO was very positive signaling the Strat PV was VERY strong so our AO was positive. Not only was the PNA negative and tropical forcing was unfavorable, we also had a dominating Strat PV bottling up all the cold in the North Pole. December was always a recipe for disaster and most forecasters pegged it to be a warm month. Just not THAT warm. Looking back, I can see why it turned out to be warm though.

Your points are valid CP; however, the MJO drove the car in Dec and the Nino reached over and pushed down on the gas pedal.  Nino is what took our temp departures from warmer than normal to record warmer than normal.  But Nino was not driving the car in that situation.  IMHO. I dont not stand alone in that opinion either.  Very educated professionals agree with that.

I'm not sure if the MJO played a strong role at any point this winter, but phase 5 and 6 December analogs during El Nino DO show warmth over the eastern U.S. You can see the -PNA too. Horrific setup if you're looking for cold on the east.



Point is, the writing was on the wall written in capital bold letters.

I actually agree Al. Cold has been overstated on the models this year. That said, you have to look at the pattern at hand. At no point this season are we yet to see a -EPO, +PNA, -AO trio. We're potentially heading in that direction after February 8th. I definitely think we'll see our coldest temps this season and models probably won't be overstating BY MUCH

As my sons Kindergarten teacher woudl say " you get what you get and you don't get upset!" last winter was great and so was the winter before. I can tell you this  IF we get a weak nina for next winter things could be interesting.

La Niña isn't fun. Ugh.

And just like that after I make my post regarding February 8th-9th storm, the 18z GFS comes out showing a snowstorm for most.

All one has to do is loop the 18z GFS to see why I'm excited about February. A couple storm threats February 8th-11th before the brutal cold moves in. Then around the 15th we moderate and there may be another storm to track then. As cold relaxes, it usually is followed by a storm

My expectations were never for a cold winter I don't like or trust El Niño winters. My top end expectations were for a little bit above average temperatures and an active storm track. With the exception of the blizzard we have been WAY above average temperatures and very few storms. Just look at the lack of snow in the ski resorts. Hopefully based on what your saying frank this will change soon before it's too late

Would be great if this was a redux of winter of 94 where it would rain then temp along the coast would drop to 20 and everything froze over. Ice skating on a football field will be one of my greatest memories.

as compared to Trop Tidbits that has it at 1.5C and runs  the SST over the NCEP readings by.3 to
4C for almost each reading data point


You look at the 7 day and the waters are cooling across the board in nino regions

Here is the depth of teh warm waters as well - look at how it is shallow and it rapidly cooled in the east regions to the right of the the animation.
